Hachai Guidelines for Authors & Artists

Hachai Publishing welcomes unsolicited manuscripts. Children's books for the very young (2-4) and slightly older children (3-6) are our specialty.

We are looking for stories that convey:

We are also interested in:

Please, no animal stories, romance, violence, preachy sermonizing, or elements that violate Jewish Law.

We do not produce games, textbooks, workbooks, or books for adults.

All submissions must be typed or neatly printed, double spaced on opaque white paper - one side only.

Email submissions should be sent to editor@hachai.com and must be contained within the body of the email; no attachments, please.

Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address on title page of your manuscript.

Mailed submissions must include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) or an email address in order to receive a response. Our editors cannot respond by phone.

If you'd like your manuscript returned, please make sure the SASE has extra postage to cover the cost. If SASE is for response only, manuscripts will be disposed of with recycled office paper.

We are always looking for new artists with skill in children's book illustration. Please do not send original art. Color photocopies, tear sheets, or email links to website portfolios are best. Make sure your samples include a human character. SASE or email address necessary for any response.
